Wikisource:Visual index

From Wikisource

This a proposal to create a visual index for Wikisource's format templates. It would feature a page with lorem ipsum text with as many format features as possible. On mouse over it would highlight the feature, and on click it would redirect to the corresponding template. Here there is an example for a visual index used by a music writing software.


The simplest way would be a static image with links on certain positions. A more complex way could be an animated svg (examples on commons) or a Flash animation that would react "on mouse over".


  • Even if the text is standard for all wikisources, the links to the templates would have to be localized. See also Wikisource:Wikisource common template set.
  • If the Visual Editor is implemented, the situation may change and some templates would be no longer necessary.
